The work of the Mexican surrealist painter Frida Kahlo, who died in 1954, is a great source of inspiration to many designers. Curious who this inspiring woman was and how you see her influences in, for example, wallpaper? Read on!
In 1875 Anna Eijffinger and her husband Theo opened a wallpaper store across the street from the Royal Palace Noordeinde in The Hague. It was a time with an increasing interest in interior decorating, especially amongst wealthy people. Anna possessed a strong business instinct and worked behind the scenes directing the firm. At the time, it was extremely unusual to find a woman conducting a business. This sign of women’s liberation formed the basis of the eccentric and innovating vision that characterised the brand Eijffinger from the very start.
